At the end of a road that climbs the primordial mountain, you will arrive in this oasis which is the monastery. The monastery, which is of ancient origins, is worth a visit for the small church, buildings, and courtyards. Perched on the side of a mountain, it is in a spectacular location, surrounded by greenery.

Take a solid climb up to the castle. When you reach the top, you will be rewarded with a fantastic view of the surroundings. However, please remember that the ascent is recommended to be done in the afternoon and not with flip flops.
